A delicious part of a balanced ski suit, (when zipped into our Freerider Jacket,) this rock-solid pant also stands on its own, thank you very much. Impermeable, two-layer GORE-TEX® Performance Shell fabric is seam-taped for a tight seal. Pockets and closures are utterly water-resistant, while articulated knees and a loose cut let you really cut loose.
At the heart of GORE-TEX® fabric is an extremely thin membrane that's durably waterproof, windproof, and breathable. It has over 9 billion pores per square inch. To construct a GORE-TEX® laminate (fabric), they bond the GORE-TEX® membrane between high-performance lining and shell textiles.
Every stitch in a seam is a potential leak. That's why for durable waterproofness GORE-TEX® products rely on GORE-SEAM® tape applied by specially trained manufacturers in certified factories.
The 2-layer construction, designed for a wide range of outdoor activities, uses a specific GORE-TEX® membrane bonded to the outer material and protected on the inside by a separate lining. The separate lining ensures better wearing comfort and versatility.
The 3-layer construction, designed for more demanding activities, uses a specific GORE-TEX® membrane sandwiched between the outer material and backer material. 3-Layer provides added durability without additional weight or bulk.
GORE-TEX® fabrics provide truly durable waterproofness, keeping water out through prolonged use in harsh conditions and demanding applications.
